Title I Program

Overview of Title 1

Title I funding is used to offer support services to students who need extra time and instruction to master grade-level curriculum based on district assessments.  Title I services may be short-term or long-term depending on the needs of each individual student. We are pleased to offer these services to help ALL of our students be successful.

Board Policy - Title 1 Services 

We encourage parents to be actively involved in any curricular decisions for their children. You may review Oakridge Board Policy for Title 1 Services to better understand your rights as a parent of a student receiving Title I support services.

Title 1 Annual Parent Meeting

To provide parents an opportunity to learn about and provide input on the Title 1 program at Oakridge, we hold an annual parent meeting.  The next scheduled Title 1 Parent Meeting is Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at 6:00 pm.  

Below is a recorded webinar of Superintendent Tom Livezey providing an overview of the Title 1 Program and key information that parents have a right to know.  This webinar will also review the curriculum and assessments that are used in our schools and provide an overview of how to access information on how students are doing on these assessments.

Parent Compacts & Involvement Plans

Every parent of a student who receives Title 1 funded services will be provided a "School-Parent Compact" that describes what the school, parents, and students will do to share responsibility for student achievement.  Students' success depends on this partnership between the home and the school.  Below are the compacts for each Title 1 funded school.   

Title 1 Funding

The 2021-22 Title 1 funding allocation is approximately $410,000.  This funding is less than 2% of the District's annual budget.  This funding supports students through the following services and personnel:

  • Provides 7 interventionists to support students struggling to meet expectations on literacy or math standards.

  • Provides literacy materials to engage students with quality resources.
  • Provides tutoring services and supplies to students living in a homeless situation.
  • Provides technology devices (Chromebooks or iPads), learning applications,  and accompanying technology support services to engage students with accessible learning content and experiences.
  • Provides supplies to support the annual Title 1 Parent Meeting and other parent engagement activities.
  • Provides funding to support Oakridge resident students who attend a school outside Oakridge boundaries.  This is a requirement in the law.
